Please regard this as a personal appeal. You must meet God. Are you ready? In comparison with this question all others sink into utter insignificance; before it all other problems pale. You may be successful in business, brilliant in your profession, and healthy in your body and mind; you may be religious and respected by your friends, but "What is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" (Matthew 16:26). This is the solemn unanswered question of Scripture.
To be ready to meet God requires a new birth. Have you been born again? This is more than success, more than health, more than religion, more than respectability. These may all be present and the essential new birth unknown. "Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God" (John 3:3). This statement is unequivocal. It cannot be evaded. It was uttered by the Lord Jesus Christ. The necessity for the new birth arises from the fact that as born into this world we all spring from a sinful stock, we all are sinners. This effectually bars fellowship with God. Sin is contrary to the nature of God. He hates it. He is "of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity" (Habakkuk 1:13).
While God hates sin, He loves sinners, whether they tread the clean or filthy side of the broad road. "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16). God's judgment on sin fell upon Christ on the Cross, and there is cleansing and forgiveness for all who believe on Him. "But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name" (John 1:12). Thus by new birth, by receiving Christ, by believing He died for my sins, I am born into the family of God, and can answer the question, "Are You Ready?" with a glad and confident, "Yes!"
Have you known this change? Have you experienced this new birth? Have you accepted the Lord Jesus as your Saviour and Lord? Do not resent these personal questions. Were I to tell you of a path to wealth and fame you would doubtless give eager consideration to my proposals, however incredible they might appear. This new birth may seem to you incredible. Tens of thousands, however, know its reality in their heart and life. Do not therefore refuse to face the problem because of its seeming incredibility. Put the matter to the test. Do it now. The terms are simple: "As many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God" (John 1:12). Will you receive Him, the living Christ of God who died, rose again, and now offers salvation to all who believe on Him? Will you trust Him now as your very own Saviour? It is not the reception of a creed, or identification with a sect, or becoming a religious person that saves. It is the acceptance of a Person, the Son of God. Your acceptance or rejection of Him answers the solemn question, "Are You Ready?"
Thus the issue is very clear, and the point is very fine. Christ is the test. In none other is there salvation—in church, or creed, or religion—"Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved" (Acts 4:12). "To Him give all the prophets witness, that through His name whosoever believeth in Him shall receive remission of sins" (Acts 10:43). Therefore, believe on Him and be saved. Meet God you must! Are YOU ready?
We can add your custom imprint to individual titles of Gospel Tracts, as well as our Calendar Cards. Please note that Tract Assortments, Poems, Mini Tracts, booklets, and some Believers Tracts cannot be imprinted.
How Much Does Tract Imprinting Cost? The imprinting charge is $4 per pack for tracts. There are no setup fees or minimum or maximum quantity limits, so when you order an imprinted item, feel free to order as few or as many copies as you want.
How Much Does Calendar Card Imprinting Cost? To order imprinted calendar cards, locate the special Personalized item in the Calendar Cards category. The imprinting charges are already built into this item; there are no other extra charges or fees.
How Long Will It Take to Get My Imprinted Items? Tract imprints of about 3,000 copies or less (per title) only require 2-3 business days for printing. Tract imprints of 3,000 or more copies (per title) usually require 2-3 weeks for printing. Imprinted calendar cards are usually shipped in about 1 week.
Where Does My Imprint Go? Every tract has a reserved space on the back (approximately 1" tall x 3" wide) for imprinting (see picture at right). The calendar card has a reserved space on the calendar side (beside the year). Your imprint will go in this space.
How Much Text Can My Imprint Include? There is room for up to 5 lines of text on Gospel Tracts (4 lines on calendar cards), with approximately 40 characters per line. Adding more text would require the text to be so small that we don't recommend it.
Can I Add A Logo or Image? Yes, you can upload your own custom logo or image. Remember that adding an image to your imprint reduces the amount of room available for text, and you should limit your text accordingly.

Do I Have to Enter My Imprint Over and Over? Nope. If you are ordering multiple tracts with the same imprint, you can enter all of the details with the first tract, and then enter "same" on Line 1 for the others. Likewise, if you have ordered imprinted tracts in the past and want to use the same information, simply enter "same as before."
